Konrad Bajer

(1956 - 2014)

We received the sad news that Professor Konrad Bajer died on 29 August 2014.

Konrad Bajer was professor of fluid dynamics at Warsaw University. He has made great contributions to EUROMECH and to other organisations.

For example, he was the organiser of the European Turbulence Conference (ETC13) in 2011 in Warsaw, and he was a member of the European Turbulence Conference Committee.

We sympathize with his wife and two children. Konrad Bajer will be deeply missed.

EUROMECH Fluid Mechanics Prize and Fellows 2014

The EUROMECH Fluid Mechanics Prize is awarded to:

Prof. Andrea Prosperetti (Johns Hopkins University, USA and Twente University, NL)

«In recognition of his profound, seminal contributions to fluid dynamics and acoustics in general and to bubble dynamics and rain noise in particular, including the development of novel numerical techniques, and for his world leadership in these fields and his brilliance in their applications to engineering».

Newly appointed Fluid Mechanics Fellows are:

Prof. Eberhard Bodenschatz (Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, Göttingen, Germany)
«In recognition of his seminal, innovative contributions to experimental turbulence research, especially to Lagrangian aspects and turbulence-particle interactions, and for establishing and leading a strong European turbulence community».
Prof. Javier Jiménez (Universidad Politecnica de Madrid, Spain)
«In recognition of his pioneering direct numerical simulations of fundamental and applied fluid flows and his significant contribution to understanding the turbulent near-wall cycle and how turbulence is sustained, creating new and profound physical insight».
Prof. Jens Eggers (University of Bristol, UK)
«In recognition of his profound and insightful contributions to the mathematical and physical description of singularities that govern many key features arising in many contemporary problems of fluid mechanics and in capillary flows in particular, and for his widely recognized leadership in this field».

The Prize and the Fellowships will be awarded at EFMC10 in Copenhagen, 14-18 September 2014.
